FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a Fort Wayne man has died from injuries he suffered when he was struck by an SUV while walking in a street.

The Allen County coroner’s office says 29-year-old Adam Shaw died at a hospital from blunt-force trauma two days after he was hit Friday night.

Police say the SUV driver told officers that he didn’t see Shaw until he was struck. A witness told investigators that Shaw was dressed in all-dark clothing, making it difficult to see him in the industrial area east on the city’s east side.

Police say Shaw was wearing headphones when he was hit. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
